Family members and friends shocked by acquittals

Filed under: Politics — Hornbill Unleashed @ 8:02 AM

The family members and friends of Parti Keadilan Rakyat (PKR) Miri secretary Bill
Kayong were shocked and angered by the High Court’s decision yesterday to acquit all three men accused of abetting in his murder.

When contacted, Davy Kayong – Bill’s younger brother – said the family was in total shock.

“We cannot accept the decision. We cannot believe it,” he said.

A group of Bill’s friends and relatives gathered in front of the courthouse were seen shouting their dissatisfaction over the ruling.

Bill’s widow Hasyikin Hatta, and his two children Zinedine Zidane, 18, and daughter Veralyna Kay, 15, were also seen in court, but would not comment on the ruling.

Hasyikin walked directly to her car as soon as the session ended around 11.45am.

Judge Ravinthran N Paramaguru discharged and acquitted Datuk Stephen Lee Chee Kiang, 46; Chin Wui Ching, 51; and Lie Chang Loon, 38; as he said the prosecution had failed to establish a prima facie case.

However, Ravinthran said he was satisfied there is credible evidence for Mohamad Fitri Fauzi, 30, to enter his defence.

Mohamad Fitri is charged with murder under Section 302 of the Penal Code, which provides for a mandatory death sentence.
